St. Florian, known by many as the patron saint of firefighters, was a commander in the Roman army during the reign of the Emperor Diocletian.  Sentenced to death by fire for his faith, he was beaten and scourged, then drowned in the Enns River with a stone tied around his neck.  His body was found by a pious woman, who gave him a fitting burial.  He is often shown with a container of water, as he is reputed to have saved a town from burning with a bucket of water.  His feast day is celebrated on May 4.
